Kellie Wakefield to lead Jones Melling team

Kellie Wakefield has joined property and construction advisory firm Jones Melling as a senior associate.

Kellie, who qualified as a building surveyor ten years ago, will manage the firm's 11-member building surveying team across its Preston, Chester and London offices.

Gary Melling, Jones Melling director, said: "Kellie is a team player with brilliant leadership skills. It was clear from our first conversation, that she is commercially-minded and really enjoys her work. She has already demonstrated excellent rapport with our clients and will play an integral role in establishing long-standing business relationships for the firm.

"Her role will also include responsibility for the day-to-day management of the building surveying team and she will take a lead in its development."

Kellie added: “Ken and Gary made me feel valued right from the start. Their enthusiastic and forward- thinking approach to business is very refreshing. The firm offers a professional yet family-like environment to work in and I look forward to extending my management skills and being in charge of such a talented team.

"I worked predominantly in the warehousing and commercial sectors in my previous role in Liverpool, so I’m also looking forward to working on wider range of client projects including across the education and care sectors and in particular, on listed buildings."
